How does the saying go? One person’s trash is another person’s treasure? Well, looks like it works for newspaper columns also. Reuters is reporting that the New York Times is planning on launching a daily business column (what timing!) to be provided by Breakingviews.com.
You may recall the Wall St. Journal, which had a contract with the site through 2009, dropped Breakingviews.com last week so that it might focus on its “Heard on the Street” column, but retains a six percent stake in the company. The Times plans on running the column daily beginning next week. Hopefully there will still be businesses to report on at that time.
